not much to see ecxept of the monument on the outside, which is a very nice one and near the city center, so a walk by it is enough

We went here not really knowing much about the post office's history. This is a quick 15 minute walk from the Old Town and is very cheap to enter (6 Zloty I think). We spent just under an hour looking through all of the artifacts, pictures, and reading the history. I thoroughly enjoyed the experience and would recommend this to... More

This building was almost opposite our hotel (Great Western Bonum) and is well worth a visit. Surprisingly it is still a working post office. There are very moving photographs and artefacts to see. There is a lovely monument in front of the building and do look round outside of building where there is more to see.

Looking at the building you at first could walk by. Don't. There is impressive monuments behind the main building and some photos. Worth a stop. We visited on a golf buggy city tour. Ask your driver to stop and give you five minutes to take a look

Before IIWW in Gdansk were only two polish facilities - military station on Westerplatte and Polish post office. After the German invasion of Poland, the German army attacked the office of Polish Post in Gdańsk, they could not capture over many hours. In the end, they set fire to the building forcing the Polish people to leave the building. All... More

During the outbreak of WWII, a small group of Polish Army and secret services put up a spirited but ultimately ill-fated resistance in this post office. The post office/Museum is some of the few sites where the Polish forces defended against Germany during WWII. A small but detail exhibition shows the historical tension and significance of the tension that existed... More

This museum is housed in the large old post office in Gdansk and whilst the exhibition is small, it is very moving and gives an insight into the plight of the Postal workers trying to defend their country. Information is available in English and there is a beautiful and thought provoking monument outside the museum. The entrance fee is minimal... More

A very small museum but one dedicated to the brave postal workers who saw it as their duty to stand up to the invading forces and defend their country. Very moving as you know what the outcome was and that real people suffered and died.
